Rampant Rubin seals Wimbledon junior title

    Noah Rubin was crowned Junior Boys Singles champion at Wimbledon on Sunday.

    The American concluded a memorable run with a thrilling victory over sixth seeded Stefan Kozlov in the final on Court 1.

    Rubin ran out 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 victor against his countryman before embracing his father in the crowd in a contest that lasted more than two hours.

    Playing in only his second junior event of the year, Rubin, who trains with the John McEnroe school of tennis in New York, progressed from the qualifiers on his way to the prestigious crown. "It was just point by point, match by match. Eight matches later, this is where I am," he said.

    Rubin said he was blown away by the atmosphere on the closing day of the championships. "I didn't expect (the court) to be that packed. I actually thought nobody was going to come out to the match, but that was not the case. They were all very enthusiastic to be out there and the atmosphere was unbelievable.

    It was almost surreal, but hopefully it will kick in in the next couple of days

    "It was almost surreal, but hopefully it will kick in in the next couple of days.

    "I didn't expect much coming into these tournaments. I just wanted to get out here and enjoy myself. It's one of my final junior tournaments, so it's nice to have this under my belt. I'll always remember this time."
